FBI Determines The Bubba Wallace/NASCAR ‘Noose’ ‘Hate Crime’ Never Happened

The FBI has now officially determined that NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s claim that the ‘noose’ he found in his garage was not, in fact, part of a hate crime and had actually been there since at least October.

This comes after days of hysteria from both NASCAR and the mainstream media over the allegations.

As Yahoo News reports:

The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Alabama said Tuesday that no federal charges would be filed after a noose was found in Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega on Sunday.

A statement from U.S. Attorney Jay Town and the FBI’s Johnny Sharp said that the noose had been in the garage stall since the fall of 2019. Wallace was assigned that garage stall at Talladega earlier in the week. Garage stall assignments are typically done via points standings after the previous race event.

The noose was found Sunday by a team member of Wallace’s. Wallace did not see the noose and only knew it existed when he was informed by NASCAR president Steve Phelps later that afternoon.

“On Monday, fifteen FBI special agents conducted numerous interviews regarding the situation at Talladega Superspeedway. After a thorough review of the facts and evidence surrounding the event, we have concluded that no federal crime was committed. The FBI learned that garage number 4, where the noose was found, was assigned to Bubba Wallace last week. The investigation also revealed evidence, including authentic video confirmed by NASCAR, that the noose found in garage number 4 was in that garage as early as October 2019. Although the noose is now known to have been in garage number 4 in 2019, nobody could have known Mr. Wallace would be assigned to garage number 4 last week. The decision not to pursue federal charges is proper after reviewing all available facts and all applicable federal laws. We offer our thanks to NASCAR, Mr. Wallace and everyone who cooperated with this investigation.”

Wallace has been an outspoken advocate of various social justice causes, but after promoting a ‘hate crime’ which appears to now been essentially a hoax will NASCAR fans start tuning out from the sport completely?

Now the fact that a noose was any where in the garages of NASCAR in itself is quite troubling in many different ways. Now he noose may have been there for years but it sdoes not make it right for it to be there. Now Wallace was not the one who rported the noose it was part of his work crew, well according to the FBI report.

Robert do we need to get rid of all those loops that riders put their hands in/on when on the subway or bus? After all, they make a loop and look like a NOOSE to the under educated racists. You cannot possibly be that dumb.

It was a rope to pull down the roll-up door. I have one on my storage unit. It’s perfectly innocuous and quite handy if it’s a tall opening. The whole affair was an exercise in stupidity. I mean if it’s tied to the door on the other end, could the pinhead NASCAR people not figure out it’s to close the door with? Even more so when every other stall is equipped the same way. Duh.

Hey Robert. Can you understand it was a “handle” so the door could be more easily pulled down? There are LOTS of “nooses” out there being used for various reasons besides trying to intimidate or hang someone. What a bunch of idiots jumping on the “racist” bus!!!

Are you really as stupid as you seem to be? It was a handle on a rope to lower the freaking door, I’ve seen them in garages my whole career, it’s a rope you tie knots in ropes, it clearly wasn’t a noose.

A year or two ago somebody with too much time on his hands fashioned a noose as a pull down handle for the garage door of #4 at that track. And although Bubba has every right to be upset by that symbol there was no racism intended by who ever made it. If Blacks want to remove the Confederate Battle Flag as a symbol of oppression they should co-opt it as their own. A “see what we can overcome” symbol. How many racists would be waving it then? Sew it on the seat of their pants. “Every time I fart I wave that flag.”

If Bubba has a right to be upset or offended by a rope in the shape of a noose, then all I’ve got to say is that he better not watch any old cowboy movies. But then a huge row would be launched saying old cowboy movies are “raciest” b/c there are NOOSES in them and it offends his thin skin. I guess in today’s political environment all the dead cowboys who were hanged have families from 150 years ago have a right to be offended too……….no matter that they were criminals to start with and in fact EARNED their hanging. Every day I read the news and there’s something more stupid in it than the day before, but I think Bubba and the Noose takes the cake for pure stupidity. Oh, excuse me………Bubba’s team, since they’re the ones who started the whole rig-mo-roe!!

The cowboys who were hanged were hanged because they were criminals. The Blacks who were hanged were hanged because they were Black. If you dont know the difference then you can eat your entire stupidity cake.

What if the hung cowboy was a black cowboy.
Was he still hung merely for being black?
I’m with you Bernie99, and I only learned when I enrolled at an IVY league university that I will not name, it is impossible for ANY black person to commit any crime.
Those crimes only occurred in the white man’s racist mind. But not in reality.
Hey, Bernie99, I think like you.

Bernie99: What about a whip? What about a tree? What about a chain?
Do we have to get rid of every single item that was ever used to torment and enslave someone, somewhere, in some past occurrence? That’s the slope you’re sliding down.
If this noose was not prominently displayed as some sort of message, it’s simply an item that was used to pull on a door. There is no evil implication that can be inferred.
We all need to stop being offended by random events.
PTSD is real, and had Bubba witnessed a lynching, perhaps he would be triggered by symbols of that event. But this is obviously a contrived scenario, just like the Jesse Smollett hoax. I would suggest he be fined for falsely filing these charges and wasting the FBIs time.

Per the dictionary: Hoax- something intended to deceive or defraud
So how was it a hoax? Who was the person intending to deceive? Wallace didn’t. NASCAR? No again. The crewman? Nope. Is it Hillary? Did Hillary do this just to hurt some easily fooled racists? Yeah, it was probably Hillary.

This driver is stupid. Couldn’t he figure out that other attempts at faked racial abuses didn’t work and he’d only look like a fool when the truth came out. I feel sorry for all those people that stood up for him and walked with his car to show solidarity. His lies now make them look foolish and I would imagine they are angry.

Wallace is singlehandedly destroying NASCAR although NASCAR is so easily bullied, they are effectively aiding their own demise.
NASCAR threw out Kyle Larson for a slip of the tongue in a non-official Cup Race so shouldn’t they do the same to Wallace for aiding in the commission of a hoax?
Where is this equality they want??

If you are going to be upset, be upset at the fact that only Democrats owned slaves, wrote the Jim Crow Laws, started the KKK and Didn’t vote for the Civil Rights Act. They bamboozled the Blacks to join their side when FDR promised the moon after the Depression hit and never delivered. Today close to 13 Million aborted babies were black. Margaret Sanger, who started Planned Parenthood would be so proud and happy that she acomplished so much eradication of the black community in the USA. LBJ also greatly contributed to the fact that so many black children are having to contend with no fathers in their household. If you are going to be md at anyone Bubba, be mad at the Democrats who are using you and other blacks to much their agendas and make themselves powerful and RICH. WAKE UP!

I find it hard to believe that Wallace uses the name “Bubba”. Since he is so sensitive and never saw a garage door pull, Oh, that’s right he said he never actually saw it, but was told about it. Guess he is a privileged child and always had an electric garage door opener. But, back to the Super Sensitive Bubba comment. Bubba is a derogatory name used by the elitist to denote a stupid, ignorant individual from the Appalachians, or the South. If they use that “Southern” name won’t he be offended and start crying again.

I’m 75 years old and have been going to nascar racing since I was 16– southern 500, firecracker 400 Atlanta 500 and Richard Petty was my all time favorite driver. Even sent him a campaign contribution when he ran for office in North Carolina. However after this stupidity I wouldn’t walk across the street to see him. Will miss that petty blue, but nascar has seen the last of me!
